Hello , I want to ask: Does vps allowed scanning port?

1 Answer

Port scanning your own droplets and checking for vulnerabilities is allowed.

Port scanning servers you have received permissions to scan from your droplet is also allowed.

Port scanning servers that are not your own, from your droplet without permission would be considered abusive.

Scanning or vulnerability testing that utilizes flooding or load testing can affect other droplets on the same hypervisor and is not allowed.
